Universal Acceptance: 1-Day Seminar & Training Event

Join us to fix the “bug” of your Internet apps, websites, SaaS or email servers now!

If you are still not aware of Universal Acceptance yet, you may already be shutting out some online users at the doorstep now without knowing! The Internet has evolved with multi-lingual and long domain names such as .香港, .在线, .online, .भारत, etc a couple years ago. While the major web browsers and some email clients are already supporting such domains technically, many of the businesses and software developers are still yet to adapt the changes in their I.T solutions, which in turn hinder users from accessing their services.

Supported by ICANN and the Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG), this 1-day seminar and training event will inform you about the:

  • Business opportunities of the upcoming second round of new generic Top-Level Domains program
  • How to leverage new TLDs to build and market your brand
  • Why do you need to achieve Universal Acceptance and what it takes
  • Practical programming & email systems configuration training on Universal Acceptance.

Who shall join us?
Business owners, I.T decision makers, system administrators, software developers, I.T students, ICT educators
